And I don't know if they're following 5e Core rules or not but here it is:

damage for every 10 feet it fell, to a maximum of 20d6.
The creature lands prone, unless it avoids taking
damage from the fall.

That doesn't scale to the laws of physics very well, choosing to use a more simplistic method for quicker resolution at the table-top.

Personally, I prefer the more realistic rule used in the AD&D Wilderness Survivor's Guide:

Distance of Fall Damage
10 feet 1d6
11-20 feet 3d6
21-30 feet 6d6
31-40 feet 10d6
41-50 feet 15d6
51 feet or more 20d6 (maximum)

But, that said, in a game based on the 5e rules, the AD&D Wilderness Survival Guide rule should be, at best, a Homebrew Rule. Perhaps enforced only on a higher difficulty setting in BG3.
